Back at Arts Council for rehearsals

After a number of weeks at the lovely First Presbyterian Church, we have returned to the Durham Arts Council building and a newly-renovated IBM room. Photos from our time at First Presbyterian will be posted soon.

Work on the Christmas music continues, but a number of our female singers have taken on an additional task; they are collaborating with the Durham Symphony this weekend.

The Symphony's concert, entitled "War and Peace" includes selections from Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Hovhaness, Heinrich Von Biber, Tchaikovsky , and Durham composer Lance Hulme.
Hulme's composition, 'Threnody for the Victims of September 11, 2001', is scored for strings and female voices. That is where the vocalists from the Choral Society come in.
There have been a number of rehearsals for the singers leading up to this performance; including sessions with Mr. Hulme and Maestro William Henry Curry of the Durham Symphony.

The concert will be performed at the Carolina Theatre in Durham this Sunday, October 30th at 3pm.
